When we were in West Virginia a few weeks back I came up with the idea of having a Secret Santa for ugly sweaters. It involved all 6 of us drawing a name of another family member and then purchasing a hideous Christmas sweater for that person. It was such a fun idea and we all had a great time shopping, even if some of us took it a little more seriously than others.
The rules for the contest were simple--you open the present with your name on it and you have to wear whatever was in the box when we went bowling that night. Didn't matter how ugly it was. And boy, were they ugly:
|Dad's gift to Erinn|
|Mom made Mike's. Of course|
|Erinn had me. I hated her.|
|I had Mike and this made me lauuugghhh...|
|"My heart melts for you." Inappropriate when it's from your son-in-law.|
|Tis' the season! Love, your son.|
It was so much fun and we had lots of laughs. Merry Christmas!
